TWO WEEK COURSE: RELIEF PRINTMAKING & SMALL INSTALLATION FORMAT
June 20 - July 5, 2023
(no class on July 4)
9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Various printmaking techniques will be covered but the focus will be on relief printmaking merged with mixed media installation format. The innovative nature of printmaking allows artists to utilize traditional techniques with contemporary notions to combine various media and materials to create installations in classroom and outdoor settings. We will examine printed multiples with relief printing and drawn imagery as monotypes to express meaning in the body of work as installation-based art. Furthermore, this course will address the temporary, permanent, and site-specific nature of installation-based art through printmaking and multiples.
Course equivalent: Printmaking I (ARTS-230), Printmaking II (ARTS-231)
